The Power of Intentional Planning with Jason Blumer


Did y’all know that rhythms define and contain your commitments and that a rhythmic calendar will align your team for success? Jason Blumer is solo on the newest episode of Thrivecast to discuss the role of strategic, pre-planned calendars in forming intentional and fulfilling work.

A pre-blocked calendar prevents time wastage on trivial tasks and keeps you focused on the important goals—contributing to your overall success. Jason further unpacks the significance of attention as a precious resource. He’ll discuss how misuse of attention can spiral into chaos and how you, as an entrepreneur, can preserve it best. Owning a firm often feels like a rollercoaster ride, and it’s imperative to build your own structure and order using tools like calendar-blocking.

Listen to learn about implementing the methodology of strategic work calendar-blocking, which Jason and his partner, Julie, use in their businesses and coach others on. This powerful tool involves blocking out your calendar an entire year in advance, and how this simple action can drastically augment your strategic planning and execution. Remember, while entrepreneurship empowers you to carve your own future, it’s not about succumbing to your emotional whims. Jason dives into the dangers of an “unintentional future” and how pre-planned calendar can help you stay on track.

Listen to the full episode for a sneak peak of part 2 where Jason will be focusing on the practical aspects of strategic calendar work blocking. Stay tuned for more insights!
